Red, White and Blue at Crafty Bloggers Network

This month at Crafty Bloggers Network we are sponsored by Oak Pond Creations and I chose this image called Beach Crabs. I coloured with Copics and Spectrum Noirs and used a Spectrum Noir pen to colour some cardstock blue.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

We want to see your cards in the theme 'Red, White and Blue' so let's see what you come up with, and Happy Crafting!

Favourite Colours at Craft for the Craic

At Craft for the Craic this month we want to see your crafty creations using your favourite colours.

I would have said I don't have a favourite colour but when I decide to get inky it does seem to be the blues I reach for.  I used blues and greys distress inks, Artemio flourish stamps, a stencil, embossing paste with distress stain mixed through for colour, Craftwork Cards papers, flowers and sentiment, and splattered some blue distress ink on card before die cutting the leafy sprig.  I used Spellbinders Labels 22 to cut the little frame out of a scrap of card I had lying around the craft table.  A gem, sequins and ribbon finished the card off.

So, reach for your favourite colours and share what you've made this month over at Craft for the Craic
